'm encouraged that speaker boehner is making some conciliatory comments. >> stephanie: here is john boehner yesterday. >> there is a mandate in yesterday's results, it's a mandate for us to find a way to work together on the solutions to any challenges that we all face as a nation. >> stephanie: now? now you are going to try to work -- this just make you shake your head having been in the trenches there for the last few years. >> it does. one thing that will change the dynamic is for all of those in the gop leadership who's soul reason for being seem to be denying the president to second term, stop him from accomplishing anything if they could. obviously that motivation is gone. so hopefully that will make them a little more willing to come to the table. i was a little bit struck by something when the speaker talked about this being the president's moment -- the president's time. it seemed to me that this is a shared responsibility. he should be saying, rather it's our time to come together and make this happen rather than we're going to wait for you, mr. president.

yesterday that would get rid of half of the fiscal cliff right there. can we do that? or is it john boehner who is going to stop that? >> caller: you see, it's hard to read right now. i think there was somewhat of an acknowledgment by everyone in the house that everybody spoke for that fairness for the middle class. that statement that it appearing to be universally popular i believe is on target, and i would hope we can go forward and do that piece, do that tax cut for the middle class and continue to work away at other pieces. >> stephanie: right, well congressman tonko i guess i want to get your take on this. we've heard a lot so far--first of all, it seems that they're feigning yeah, yeah, we're going to compromise, but either it's mitt romney plan for some other tangent for the rich. and they've suggested going over the clip. i'm reading this piece from reuters saying that that could butt levels to where they were in the 90s and they might agree to to a tax deal. there is obviously feeling on both sides. corporate america, but what do you--i know patty murray, dick turban and others ha
